Kinect game Matter 'no longer pursued' by Microsoft

Director Gore Verbinski's motion control game cancelled

Matter, a game in development by Blind Wink Games and overseen by director Gore Verbinski, has been cancelled.


Verbinski, whose directorial work includes Pirates of the Caribbean, was collaborating with Blind Wink Games on the Xbox Arcade title, which was to centre on its use of Kinect.

But according to a report by Joystiq, Microsoft Studios has cancelled the title. In an exchange with a Microsoft representative, the site was told that "Microsoft Studios is no longer pursuing this title".

Matter was unveiled at E3 2012. Verbinski was also working on a film adaptation of BioShock which has since been cancelled.
